COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This stout is sheer beer poetry. Let it warm to about 45 F and pour it into a glass to fully experience its rich, roasty flavors and hints of coffee and chocolate. One glass and you’ll agree: The Poet is truly a rich, creamy brew of epic proportions.

One of my favorites. The oatmeal stout has a wonderful stout flavor and creaminess and one of the best mouth feels I’ve had in a beer. I find it very satisfying.

Pours jet black with just a trace of tan head. Aroma is not as stong as I’d expect, chocolate and burnt malts. Taste is malts and oatmeal with a wave of hops coming through for a bittersweet finish. Thick mouthfeel. Overall an excellent oatmeal stout.

Very dark and heavy, even more so than Guinness. Thin tan head. Smoky with some dark chocolate flavor. They should really have a separate category for oatmeal stout, although there is a light sweet quality to this beer.

Cybercat (3268) - Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Aroma is rich, smoky, oily with an undertone of unsweetened chocolate and just a touch of molasses. It pours a deep chocolaty sable with a thick but not too persistent tan head. Rich flavor fills the mouth with roast coffee, unsweetened chocolate and a hint of molasses and even a touch of hops. Texture is smooth and easy going yet leaves a nice tingly finish.

Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Smells roasted and hints of chocolate. Taste is chocolate and roast. Medium-bodied with a smooth, creamy texture and soft mouth-carbonation, New Holland The Poet finishes roasted and sweet.

Amazingly smooth, creamy mouthfeel. The aroma makes you almost hungry. One of my favorite Oatmeal Stouts, which is saying something. On tap, this is truly incredible. In a bottle, its still pretty awesome.

Rich and fully bodied with a huge tan head. Roasted coffee is the dominant flavor with cocoa powder and burnt toast. Long sweet finish well tempered by a rise in hop bitterness towards the end.
